A Lenawee County judge has granted a divorce to the parents of three brothers missing in Morenci.
John and Tanya Skelton appeared in court Tuesday for a brief hearing. It was an unusual scene in court. John Skelton represented himself and was allowed to pose questions to Tanya Skelton.
John Skelton remains in jail on kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment charges. He's due in court Wednesday.
Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton were last seen in their father's backyard on Nov. 25, 2010. The boys were reported missing when they were not returned to their mother, Tanya Skelton's, home. John Skelton told a court, during a Dec. hearing, that he gave his sons to an organization . Nearly two months later, Skelton told authorities that he gave his three boys to a group called "United Foster Outreach" and another group called "Underground Sanctuaries."
Skelton has said he doesn't know the whereabouts of his three young sons. The 39-year-old is charged with kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment, and is jailed on $90 million bond.
